of heated conversation on the economy. out of six 15-minute segments, 3 will focus on the nation's finances. the economy remains a top issue for voters. and many americans are anticipating a victory from the president. pew research reports 51% of voters say they think obama will win in tonight's broadcast. an analyst with the sunlight foundation tells first business that the pressure is on for the romney campaign. "in the polls it looks like romney is falling behind and falling further behind in the battleground states. although nationally it's a very close election, he's been hammered in the battleground states. the debates can be a great equalizer for him, but also that increases the pressure on him, whereas i think we are going to see barack obama playing a lot more defense." that was bill allison of the sunlight foundation. at long last, a wall street firm is being sued for fraud in connection with the housing crash. the suit was filed monday by the new york attorney general. the lawsuit holds jp morgan chase responsible for action by wall street firm bear stearns, which it acquired in
zakaria. welcome from all over. i'm fareed zakaria. the state economy. i was the topic of this week's presidential debate and be d deciding week of the election. we're often told we need to get businesses to start investsing and hiring. well, we have three powerhouse ceos on the show. lloyd blankfein, and john of cisco systems. next, 11 years after 9/11, do we have to worry about al qaeda again? i'll talk to the former cia chief michael hayden about the aftermath of the benghazi attack. >>> and on his decade in hiding after a threat was placed on his life. >>> also, if china's growth slows, should the rest of us cheer? no. >>> first, here's my take. the pundit dees claired mitt romney the winner. he was. obama seemed passive, detached, and glum. but what's more significant than how romney said things is what he said. romney repeatedly insisted he was not advocating a big tax kuchlt in fact, he declared unequivocally that he would not cut taxes at all if they added to the deficit at all. now, as "the washington post" reporter checks out, for two years rom hi has been campaigning on a
with difficult year. spelling out one must critical states of the campaign. they're not improving the economy when democrats controlled congress. >>> we got around that was more deficit and more people struggling to find work. no solutions the extra work. >>> the vice president appeal to voters and another battleground state. telling them that medicare will be around for future generations. >>> the actions of the president took to strengthen the medicare trust and exceeded this life of a 2024. >>> president obama and mitt romney are prepping for the first debate. to get help from the ohio senator will play the role of the present. and president obama will look to the massachusetts senator to stand in for mitt romney. and behind in recent polls, some campaign watchers say that mitt romney has more riding on the debates and to gain for the president >>> the president has a chance to show is competent to stand up against the president of the nine states. and to accomplish that and wins the first debate >>> wednesday's debates give both canada's a chance to explain it plans for health care in the
is focusing on the economy. he's actually focus more on his own economy and obama and his staff has spoken more to the message of the economy. you can see he is talking somewhat positively about his programs but also talking more negatively about mitt romney in terms of the economy. when he is talking about character, he's got some very negative on mitt romney as opposed to speaking up his own character. i will show you the equivalent of that in mitt romney. mitt romney is spending more time talking about his character. he is splitting his time between promoting his character and making negative statements about president obama's character. the interesting thing about this chart is that not only is the economy, is he talking less about the economy than what pulled -- than what people believe he is doing what he is also focusing more negatively on obama when speaking then he's been positive about putting forth a plan of his own. i think he listened to the right wing pundits to much in terms of saying this economy will be about why obama as fat as opposed to what i have to offer the country.
our economy forward, as he has for 31 straight months. and 44-month low in the unemployment rate. you know what is really shocking is that you have republicans, colleagues of mine, mitt romney, reince priebus, disappointed to continue the football analogy. they were rooting for a fumble and it's unbelievable that they are disappointed that we have a 44-month low in the unemployment rate. the american enterprise institute said that anyone talks about cooking the books is living in crazy town. so i guess chairman priebeus and other republicans either are dwelling there or simply rooting for failure. we need to continue to move our economy forward. >> shannon: the same grandpa, aei, said that under the president's plan, taxes would go up by $4,000 are they right? >> the tax policy center, which made up of economists from the bush administration and as well as the clinton administration, their asis says when it comes to mitt romney's and paul ryan's budget plan, it would cost $2,000 to pay for tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires, it turns medicare into a voucher system. that's on
into the economy and in many cases, ideology. mitt romney would be smart to seize on the libyan controversy as part of an overall competence challenge to mr. obama. if the economy remains bad and it does just check outearnings from ford and gm today, and america's overseas strategy is wobbling, which is seems to be, governor romney should have some heavy verbal ammunition to use in the debate tomorrow night. for his part, the president will remain steadfast that everything is going according to plan. >> four years ago i said i'd end the war in iraq, i did. i said we're going to wind down the war in afghanistan. we are. and while a twin tower -- while a new tower rises above the new york skyline, al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> bill: but according to the american commander in afghanistan, al-qaeda fighters are again causing trouble in that country and the terror group might even be responsible for murdering ambassador stevens. talking points believes many voters are still persuadable. that support for the president is thin among some independents. recent rasmussen p
. the outlook of the economy was a big part of the debate. and there is now stories you can debate on. private sector hiring more workers than expected. but the case of growth is not enough. joining us is lauren. >> heather, good morning to you and everybody. tomorrow morning, we get the government's jobs report for september. we are expected 130,000 created and added. this is the number you are looking at. we found out 162,000 private jobs were added, stronger than expected. it is a good sign leading into tomorrow. keep in mind anything under 200,000 is not enough to make a dent in the unemployment picture. also in recent months two reports were consistent with each other and moved in the right direction. >> a lot of economist said we need 200,000 to 300,000 jobs a month to get back where we were before. unemployment dropped ins and that is usually a good sign. >> we told you the national unemployment fell because people dropped out of the work force entirely. here is the local picture. unemployment fell in 90 percent of large cities in the country in the month of august. that's the most in f
the world's fastest aging country and its economy is struggling with deflation. aiming at retirees are among the few sectors and growth. now some companies are going one step further. >> reporter: having your portrait taken for your own funeral might be strange to some, but in japan it's part of a range of services targeting the growing population of retirees. >> translator: i want to leave behind an enhanced picture of myself. my own favorite shot. >> reporter: people over the age of 65 have increased by more than 1 million over the past year. they make up almost one quarter of the japanese population. a proportion that's steadily on the rise. this wave of retirees was born during japan's post-war baby boom between 1947 and 1949. funeral homes, attorneys, are having an exhibition. experts provide advice on the cost of funerals, graves, and related services. this is a comic book handed out for free to all visitors. it describes how much money you need to conduct a funeral. visitors have the opportunity of lying down in a coffin. they learn about the variety of models offered by funeral homes
and they can't do anything other than use the central government to force the economy to do x and y. and they're trying to get away from that. as they move away from it, that part of the economy clearly shows some struggles. >> short the aussie dollar, what, long the mexican peso? >> mexico is one of the big winners because they're deliberately raising wages. so low value added chinese manufacturing is nowhere near as competitive in the world as it once was. you see evidence of the u.s. getting some of it back. so mexico sort of had its breakfast, lunch and dinner the past 20 years by china appearing on the scene is probably in the early stages of regaining some of that a. so i think mexico is a big winner. southeast asia, philippines, for example. >> all right. jim, stick around. more to come from you. let's get over to asia and get a wrap of the day over there. >> thanks, ross. asian markets were mostly higher buoyed by improved data in u.s. and europe and also the rba rate cut. surprising move from the central bank helped the australian market end at a five month high. resources and banks
, these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. gerri: gary, to you first. is the bls giving as ps? >> it is the bs. look. three months ago i said that even if we got newt we would be under 8% because the politics of it. we saw 30 days ago the fed announced a open ended printing of money to get asset prices up, and they say 50 days before election, this one is a joke. if you noticed anything about this number, the estimates of job gains came in the exact amount it was supposed to which should have kept it at 8.2%. the estimates, somehow we got to 7.8%, and the use the most of tiles survey, the household survey. gerri: we will get to that. >> 400,000. gerri: can these numbers be sai's? >> i don't think they can. we have had rumors of bls massaging numbers for the benefit of the democrats back under the nixon administration. in fact, that was one of richard nixon's source of paranoia, that the bls was out to get him, making the economy looked at so that he could not get reelected. that did not prove to be true. what the other person just dated was exactly rig
proved that the economy is improving under his policies. >> we have made too much product progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. >> mitt romney launched a tv ad that the recovery is too slow. even economists seem hesitant, pointing of the the number of new jobs created each month has been decreasing since july. this report a positive sign for a still fragile of economy. one downside to the report, many of the jobs created were part- time jobs, not full-time jobs. >> thank you, daniel. baltimore county police are now investigating a house fire as arson. they say the suspect used an accelerant at separate locations. the home was also burglarized. a 2006 porsche was stolen, including a television -- as well as other items, including a television and a dvd player. $680,000 worth of drugs, a handgun, two vehicles and $118,000 of cash are now in custody of the sheriff's office. authorities manage to intercept drug trafficking and arrest 21 gang members things to wiretap operation. according to the office, the gang known as the world's most dangerous
character and not about the economy. what do you think about, that, larry, a beauty pageant? >> i hope not and i don't think that is basically true. look, do people react to candidates as human beings? of course. but they also are fundamentally concerned about the country as whole. the basic issues of the campaign including the economy apply to people's evaluations of a debate. so, no, i really don't agree with that quote. i think it is entirely too superficial in more ways than one. jenna: you might be fun to have it more like a miss america pageant. >> i do not want to see candidates in bathing suits personally the that's just my preference. jenna: we all have our own preferences when it comes to learning more about the candidates, larry as you rightly point out. we'll wait until wednesday night to see what we talk about on thursday morning. always nice to have you, larry. >> thank you, jenna, could be a talent contest. not just bathing suits. we're learning more about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya as there are more calls for the united nations ambassador susan ric
to worry about a slowdown in the global economy, it is, man, that's a scary-looking chart. i will try to get it for you. >> do you think that's because of europe -- >> i think some of it's europe. i think japan to china. terrible job out there. >> because we know that honda had auto sales in our country. toyota, but they make them here. >> want to go to bob pisani. fleet matiches is an ipo and it will be pricing higher and you're in the crowd right now. >> it's always nice to see this. look. >> here's employees of fleet manics and they did fleet management and they priced last night at $17. 21 to 23 are the indications and my point is all of these people are employees of the company and jim travers is right over there and he's the ceo and he'll be on with us for a little while and they're all waiting for him to make the first trade. the ceo makes the first trade and it's 100 shares and they come over and they talk to us and that's the way it's done these days. we'll talk about it later and get more information and that will open to the upside. this morning, folks, it's all about polit
economy has not seen disruptions like some years ago. why? 1989, now each year china has many law school students. that is faster than united states, for better or for worse. [laughter] their commercializing the media. none of them existed in 1989 in china. this provided a stabilizing force for a peaceful transition. the party needs to transform itself before it is too late. there is a serious discussion among social groups talking about legitimacy of the chinese communist party. how could it be possible? because his ambition will never stop. that is an important lesson. this is a critical moment china is experiencing at this conjunction of history. so, in a way, to answer your question, the leadership, in many ways they also sense the of the vulnerability. but it is not clear whether they will really transform the party because it is a very complicated process. there are ethnic issues. again, all of these issues will resurge, plus, the economy, slowed down. that as a result of the political problems and a further revealed the fundamental problems in the system, monopoly, corruption, etc
and leadership skills and his understanding of the economy and what's missing right now in the economy. the pieces that are missing to get this jump started. for me i think it would be the emotional part of it. [ ♪ dramatic ♪ ] >> he's not emotionally ready to handle the presidency. >> stephanie: the rom bot something has gone awry. >> i'm sorry. you know i can't do that. >> stephanie: when they try to put fake emotion into the rom bot. that was scary. >> mediaite said that is worse than george romney's whole brainwashing thing. this has torpedoed his campaign. talk about the 3:00 a.m. phone call. what? what do i do? oh! >> stephanie: somebody said last week, that's what you want the guy who's going to roll down the plane window when there is a fire to take the 3:00 a.m. call. i'm an emergency spaz. some people are good in emergencies, some people are bad. i'm an emergency spaz. i'm not the person you want to be with. i'm naturally high-strung. i will always make it worse. okay. >> what? what? what's goi

to turn, now, to the economy and the race for the white house. the nation's unemployment rate dropped to 7.8% in september, bringing it below 8% for the first time in more than 3 1/2 years. as for jobs, 114,000 were created last month. while the numbers from july and august were revised higher by 86,000. so, with just 31 days to go before the election, what impact will this have on the race? it's "your voice, your vote." and our david kerley is in orlando, florida, with the latest. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, bianna. mitt romney is here in florida. this battleground state. and he comes to florida without one of his most potent weapons because that jobs reporter raced the claim that the unemployment rate has been above 8% for nearly four years. that change completely altered the political landscape and narrative of the last week. in virginia, there was no public high-fiving. but the jobs numbers were cheered by supporters of the president. >> the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> reporter: also in virginia, mitt romney's post-debate
with government -- >> we had a downturn in the economy. we of hard times, people looking for work and not able to find jobs. >> 65% of federal spending going to individual payments. it may not sound good, but we have created a welfare state. >> to blame it all on president obama is even worse. to declare the president of the united states is manipulating so people will stay and vote democrat? i think that is the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard. if such a cynical view of the presidency and of government. that cannot possibly reflect -- >> your response? >> i think a far better approach than a dependency is removing the barrier the federal government puts in place to small businesses and allowing entrepreneurs and small businesses to drive. >> what barriers? >> i am very happy to discuss the various. >> i wish she would. >> let him finish and make his point, then you can respond. >> what texans are looking for, and what is inherent in the east coast of texas, is that we are not looking for handouts. we're looking for the chance to the entrepreneur is, to work to achieve. think there have
. are the fed's actions going to have much impact on the economy, and what about the jobs picture right now? >> okay, first you got to recognize the head winds the fed is working against. economic growth is slowing because of uncertainties surrounding the fiscal cliff. analysts were overoptimistic about earnings, and that reality is sinking in. and the world is a risky place. so there's reasons investors lack conviction. with regard to jobs, we've heard the adp number before. i think it's kind of getting old. so i don't take much from the fact that markets didn't respond to the adp report. i think we'll get a solid number, 125-k. >> historically, still a very small number though, right? >> sure. it's one in which we're not making material progress in reducing unemployment, and it's not one the fed will be satisfied with. they told us they're setting a much higher bar for employment gains. >> let's talk about hp here, jeff. a sharp decline in the stock. one of the reasons that the dow industrial is really -- can't break out here in any way. you have a fair amount of winners there. hewlett pa
,000 jobs. two years ago, the president said you do not want to raise taxes in a bad economy. the economy was better than that it is now. ladies and gentleman, this is a big choice. it is not only about taxes. it is about freedom. it is about our principles. it is about our country. it is about the idea of our country. america is so much more than a country with a flag. it is an idea. these ideas make us who we are. they make us special. i will see something that in washington is considered out of date or wrong, and it is this -- america is an exceptional nation. we are not afraid to say so. [cheers and applause] >> usa! usa! usa! >> we have a chance to get ourselves on the right track. we have a chance to vote for someone who will protect our freedoms. he will lead to protect our religious freedom. he will protect our second amendment rights. ladies and gentlemen, right here in virginia, we have a big choice to make. america has a big choice to make. america will make the right choice. they saw last night who the right man for the job is. that man is standing back here. presidente the un
trying to dig the economy out of a massive hole. we were facing this economic collapse and he came into office and he has a long way to go. he needs four more years to make the difference that he's -- that we're starting to make now. and that we just need to believe that his policies do make a difference. he can now point to the data to say, look, they're making that difference. >> so that tells me even though we for so many people, the psychological number, eight, not that we're under the 8% mark in unemployment, do the obama folks think we're not over the hump, economically speaking? >> they concede that and that people are still hurting and what matters to people at home is not some number that the labor department puts out, but their own economic circumstance and whether they have a job, whether they know somebody unemployed and this is very abstract. so people are still hurting. but in terms of the political gamesmanship, 8% is an important marker because when the president passed the stimulus, one of his economists projected, it wasn't a promise, but a projection that 8% woul
, the romney campaign spoke directly to women, pointing to the economy as their key concern. penny zakrzewski agrees growing debt is her greatest worry. >> when the market crashed, we ended up having two more kids and staying in a home that is too small for us. >> reporter: a stay-at-home mom with three kids she plans to vote for mitt romney. to win virginia he needs more women like her. a recent cbs news poll shows the gender gap between romney and the president is widening, while romney holds a six-point lead among men, president obama has a 12-point advantage with women. polls also show women are more interested than men in issues impacting their pocketbook. political expert deirdre continentive says this election will come down to one demographic. >> it's going to be single women voters who are really going to be the decision pivot point in this election. >> reporter: single women, like kenny barnwell. she supports president obama. >> i kind of want to vote for the person i feel is fighting for me. >> reporter: two years after losing her job as a marketing specialist, barnes is still look
's environment. >> how do you disagree? >> i think we need to stimulate the economy. i do not think we need to do what we did. i would have, instead of subsidizing public employee jobs, my friends are public employees. that was a big part of the stimulus. i would have started also at this construction. i would have tried to finish this tunnel from new jersey into new york, which would be a huge value all over the region. i would have done it differently. again, since i do not have a degree in economics and do not want one, would not take it they gave it to me, i am just trying to apply common sense. common sense was needed to do something to shock the system. that is pragmatic economics. how i do not think we did the right thing. it was better than nothing. geoff probably disagrees. >> we have a long article on our website. "america's leaders are not leading. the children would rather stamp their feet and hold their breath than solve momentous issues of economic policy. the games are childish and the resulting suffering is serious." pick it up from there. i named nine things you want to change af
also want to give them additional tax breaks because they are the drivers of the economy. they produce the most jobs. >> you know what senator obama and adopt in a conversation with joe. we need to spread the wealth around. we will take it joe's money, give it to president obama, and let him spread it around. i want joe the plumber to spread it around. i want small businesses, that would receive an increase in their taxes right now. why would you want to increase anybody's taxes right now? why would you want to do that? when we have such a tough time. the small business people are going to create jobs unless you take the money from them and spread the wealth around. i will not do that in my administration. >> if i could answer the question. number one, i want to cut taxes for 95% of americans. it is true that my current supporter warren could afford to pay a little more in taxes in order to give additional tax cuts to joe the plumber before he was at the point where he could make to hundred $50,000. exxon mobil made $12 billion record profits over the last several quarters. they can af
's talking about or focused on the economy, and as we'll see later, he's actually focused more on his, on his own character than he is on the economy, and obama actually more has spoken, obama and his staff have spoken more to the message of the economy. and as you can see he is, you know, he's talking somewhat positively about his programs, but he's also talking more negatively about romney in terms of the economy. and when he's talking about character, as you see the third one down, he's actually gone very negative on romney as opposed to sort of speaking up his, you know, talking up his own character. so i'm going to show you the equivalent of that in romney voice share. so as you can see, romney is really sort of spending more time talking about his character. well, he's splitting his time between, you know, promoting his character and sort of making negative statements about obama's character. um, the one interesting thing about the chart that i, when i look at this is that, you know, not only is the economy, is he talking less about the economy than sort of what people believe he's doin
moderator jim lehrer. >> let's start with the economy, segment one, and let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about how you go about creating new jobs. you have two minutes each of you to start print a coin toss determines, mr. president, you go first. >> four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis in the great depression. millions of jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. the financial system had frozen up. and because of the resilience and the determination of the american people, we've begun to fight our way back over the last 30 months, we've seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. and housing has begun to rise. but we all know that we've still got a lot of work to do. and so the question here tonight is where we've been, but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations, that we would be better off. i've got a different view. i think we've got to invest in educati
in the private sector. that is what we need to get this economy going, to have the revenue that we need. we have some much over spending in government. he wants to pinpoint the spending cuts. maybe some people do not agree on what needs to be cut, but we have to make some tough choices. he is willing to do that. he has proven he can work with democrats as well as republicans like he did in massachusetts. i believe there are a lot of things that need to be on a state level, especially when it comes to the insurance like he did in massachusetts. he has proven he can do that. what he said about the board, i do not agree with that. there are many people i in my family who work in the medical health field. i have a sister who works as a director of nursing. she has said they are not going to be taking any more medicare patience. these people who depend on this are not going to be able to get what they need it. it will not work. i really thought romney hit all the points. i thought he laid out how he was going to do it. i think obama did not -- host: what do you do in akron? caller: i currently am on
